Unity SDK

This document explains how to download the Matching Engine Unity SDK and integrate it into your applications

The MobiledgeX Client Library enables an application to register and then locate the nearest edge cloudlet backend server for use. The client library also allows verification of a device’s location for all location-specific tasks. Because these APIs involve networking, most functions will run asynchronously, and in a background thread.

The Matching Engine Unity C# SDK provides everything required to create applications for Unity devices.


  • Unity 2019.2 or newer, along with selected platforms (iOS, Android) for your project
  • .Net Standard 2.0
  • A running AppInst deployed on your edge server
  • Git installed

Download the Unity SDK Package

2019.3.x and above

The fastest way to import the MobiledgeX Unity SDK into your project is by using the Package Manager. You can open it from Window > Package Manager in Unity. To add our MobiledgeX Package, select the + icon and click on “Add package from git URL…”

Enter https://github.com/mobiledgex/edge-cloud-sdk-unity.git in the text field, which will automatically start the process of importing the package into your application.

Once that finishes, you will now see the MobiledgeX SDK within your Package Manager and the SDK will be available under the Packages tab of your Project.


In order to import the MobiledgeX package into your project, you will need to edit the manifest.json file. This file is located at Unity_Project_Path/Packages/manifest.json. When opened, the file will be in this format :

  "dependencies": {
    "com.unity.*": "*.*.*",

Under dependencies, add the following : "com.mobiledgex.sdk": "https://github.com/mobiledgex/edge-cloud-sdk-unity.git" When you do, your manifest.json file should look like this (minor : do NOT include the comma if you add the mobiledgex line to the end of the dependency list):

  "dependencies": {
    "com.mobiledgex.sdk": "https://github.com/mobiledgex/edge-cloud-sdk-unity.git",
    "com.unity.*": "*.*.*",

After you finish editing and save the file, you can now click into the Unity editor and it will automatically begin the process of importing the package.

Using the MobiledgeX SDK

Once you have successfully imported the Unity package, you will see a new tab as part of the Unity menu labeled MobiledgeX

Click on Setup, which will open up a new Unity window that will ask for your application’s

  • organization name
  • app name
  • app version number

After you input your application credentials, you can click the setup button, which will communicate with the DME to verify that your application definition exists on the MobiledgeX console. If successful, your project will be set up with the correct plugins and resources necessary to use our APIs. You can verify these files were generated correctly by looking in the Plugins and Resources folders of your project.

Important: Make sure your Resources/MobiledgeXSettings.asset file has the correct information for your application.

Once that setup has been completed, you can very easily call all the necessary API requests to connect to a cloudlet with your application deployed. Here is some example code using the MobiledgeXIntegration class that comes with the package :

using MobiledgeX;

MobiledgeXIntegration integration = new MobiledgeXIntegration();
bool registered = await integration.Register(); //calls Register Client
DistributedMatchEngine.FindCloudletReply findCloudletReply = await integration.FindCloudlet(); //calls Find Cloudlet

MatchingEngine dme = integration.me;

Dictionary<int, AppPort> appPortsDict = dme.GetHTTPAppPorts(findCloudletReply);
int public_port = findCloudletReply.ports[0].public_port; // if you only have one port
AppPort appPort = appPortsDict[public_port];
HttpClient http = await dme.GetHTTPClient(findCloudletReply, appPort, public_port, 5000);
HttpResponseMessage message = await http.GetAsync("/"); //makes a get request

Platform Specific


The minimum API we support for Android is API Version 24. In your player settings, make sure to set the minimum API to 24, otherwise you will be unable to build your project.

Known Issues

If you recieve the following error and cannot compile your Unity project, restart Unity.


On iOS, if you are on a roaming network, the MCCMNC the SDK returns is the MCCMNC of your original network instead of the MCCMNC of your current roaming network, which is not the intended behavior.
